Eating more organic food could reduce your risk of cancer: study

A new study on French adults shows that people who eat a lot of organic food significantly reduced their risk of two types of cancer. We look at the findings and ask: should you be increasing the amount of organic food you eat?

Eating a diet rich in organic foods could help to reduce your risk of lymphoma and postmenopausal breast cancer, according to the results of a world-first French study.

The new research, published in the JAMA Internal Medicine today, found that people who ate a lot of organic food significantly reduced their risk of specific cancers.

Almost 70,000 French adults were involved in the study, self-reporting how often they consumed 16 different groups of organic food products including fruits and vegetables, soy-based products, condiments, chocolate, ready-to-eat meals and wine.
